As a minister in Canton, Jasper Bacon would go into the juvenile detention centers to tell incarcerated boys about Jesus. From that, God gave Jasper a vision for an organization that would reach out to juvenile offenders, offer enrichment programs for parents, and invite short-term mission groups to serve the community.
Riverwood Bible Church and many financial supporters encouraged the Bacons to step out in faith and carry forth this God-given vision. While reading the Bible, Jasper came to 1 John 2:6, "whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked. Jasper knew that "In His Steps" was to be the name of the organization. The ministry's first year was spent clarifying the vision, praying, and seeking counsel. In His Steps Ministries received its state incorporation in April 1995 and was granted 501(c)3 non-profit status on November 29, 1995, from the Internal Revenue Service.
Our Leadership Following registry with the state, a Board of Directors was formed to oversee the newly formed ministry. Responsibility for ministry oversight was transferred from Riverwood Bible Church to the Board of Directors which has grown from six original members to nine men and women who strongly support the mission of In His Steps. In His Steps Executive Director Jasper Bacon reports monthly to the board on the daily activities and financial condition of the ministry and the members consider and act upon such matters as consistent with ministry by-laws.

While going into the local juvenile detention centers and intervening in troubled teenager's lives, Jasper saw a significant need to begin a preventive ministry to reach youth at a young age. He presented the vision to the board and after much prayer and consideration the board confirmed it. Jasper and Carolyn went to the local elementary school and asked the principle for sixteen struggling 2nd graders to put in an after school program that would be offered to them until their graduation.
